From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 17): Fleener was red hot against the Patriots, gobbling up all of the tight end targets with Dwayne Allen sidelined by an ankle injury. Allen is day to day, but if he can't go in Week 12, Fleener will be a top 5 TE play against Jacksonville. Even if Allen returns to the field soon, the Colts might downplay his role as he nurses the possible high ankle sprain.

Week 12: vs Jacksonville Jaguars

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Andrew Luck and company bombed the Jaguars for 33/43 yielding 385 net yards, four TDs and zero interceptions en route to a 44-17 shellacking of their divisional rivals back in Week 3. Luck hit his receivers essentially at will, distributing TDs to Hakeem Nicks (four targets for 4/51/1 receiving), Coby Fleener (seven for 4/49/1), Dwayne Allen (six for 4/43/1) and Ahmad Bradshaw (three for 2/18/1) - T.Y. Hilton led the team in receiving yards that day with six for 5/80/0. The Jaguars cold do little to cope with Indianapolis earlier this year. Lately, the Colts have remained as formidable as ever in this phase of the game, with 48/85 for 657 yards passing, six TDs and one interception thrown for Luck over the past two contests. He's spread the wealth around, with 18 targets for 11/221/2 receiving for Coby Fleener; 19 for 9/161/1 flowing to Reggie Wayne; and 13 for 6/95/1 going to T.Y. Hilton. Meanwhile, the Jaguars' pass D has allowed 21/28 for 248 net yards, three TDs and zero interceptions to Tony Romo and company (Week 10), and 19/31 for 232 net yards, two TDs and two interceptions to Andy Dalton (Week 9). To date, Jacksonville is ranked 26th in the NFL averaging 261.9 net passing yards allowed per game, with 18 passing scores given up vs. just five interceptions (tied-27th in the NFL) and 28 sacks (seventh) generated Advantage, Indianapolis.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 9 vs NYG (11 / 4 / 77 / 1 rec)

Not only was Fleener's 11 targets the most of any Colt in Indianapolis' win over the Giants, but it was the most Fleener has had all season, as well as the most he's had in his entire career. It was a decent day for him, but not encouraging for long-term production. The fact that he only caught four of those targets is a warning sign, as is the fact that this came against the Giants' 32nd-ranked defense against tight ends by DVOA. The Colts clearly recognized the weakness and attacked it. That kind of focused effort to get Fleener and Dwayne Allen the ball won't happen every week.

2014 Week 11 vs NE (7 / 7 / 144 / 0 rec)

With Dwayne Allen injured for most of the game, Fleener stepped up and played his best game of his career. Fleener out-gained his previous career-high by 37 yards, and did it in impressive fashion with multiple catches in traffic, including a gorgeous toe-tapping grab down the right sideline. With Allen looking to miss extended time, Fleener's production could stay high in Pep Hamilton's TE-heavy offense.

Colts | Coby Fleener earning bigger role? (Mon Nov 17, 02:17 PM) - Indianapolis Colts TE Coby Fleener had a breakout game in the team's Week 11 loss to the New England Patriots, and he may be earning a bigger role in the offense, even if TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) is in the lineup.

Our View: Fleener is going to have a larger role regardless moving forward. Allen may have to miss some time due to his ankle injury, and Fleener is the next man up.
